Poolside Fun at Contemporary Hotel Close to Disney Theme Parks
Epcot Center's main entrance building has become a commonplace image in postcards and calendars, but it is a leviathan when viewed up close: the pockmarked geosphere towers for 18 stories, resembling a miniature planet. It's a fitting symbol for the fantastical, extraterrestrial feel of Disney World as a whole. The iconic, golf-ball-like Epcot structure can be seen for miles around, and it pops into view from the tower at Hilton Garden Inn Lake Buena Vista which resides just a stone's throw away. The modern hotel—less than a mile from Disney World's entryway and across the street from the popular Orlando Premium Outlets—offers easy access to the city's many family-family attractions, and a daily shuttle service arrives at the gates of Epcot.
A heated Caribbean-style pool built with Turkish travertine stone and flanked by palm trees highlights the Hilton's recreation facilities. Instead of filling the water with alka-seltzer tablets, guests can enjoy the fizzy fun created by water spouts and fountains. Meanwhile, an adjacent tiki bar serves waterside cocktails, which can be sipped under umbrellas along the pool deck.
The seven-story Hilton Garden Inn also houses the Great American Grill, where chefs prepare bistro fare such as new york strip steaks and pizza. Open for breakfast and dinner, the restaurant boasts indoor and outdoor seating marked by a casual ambiance. Alternatively, guests can choose to dine in private with late-night room service as they kick back and watch the Evolution Room's high-def TV.
Orlando, Florida: Family Entertainment at Walt Disney World and Sea World
Less than a mile from the hotel is the sprawling campus of Walt Disney World. A complimentary shuttle takes guests from Hilton Garden Inn to the doorstep of Epcot, one of Disney's four theme parks. In Epcot, visitors can wander around the World Showcase, a sweeping display of the unique architecture, wardrobes, and cuisine of several countries. In the park's Future World area, guests morph into automobile test dummies on the ride Test Track during a series of safety tests. Near the Epcot entrance, both the Disney shuttle and a monorail can whisk passengers to any of the other three Disney parks, a grab bag of thrill rides and interactive exhibits. The high-octane rollercoaster Expedition Everest whirls about a snow-capped mountain peak in search of the Yeti; if the search for the creature proves futile, Disney's Animal Kingdom plays host to a global menagerie of 1,700 animals.
Only 3 miles from the hotel, SeaWorld brings the great blue depths to life through shows, exhibits, and up-close encounters with aquatic animals. Killer whales swim and soar in the educational One Ocean show, and bottlenose dolphins use their blowholes to shoot out balls with winning lottery numbers throughout the Dolphin Cove exhibit.
